Nola Potter Beavers, of Soddy-Daisy, began a homecoming celebration on Thursday, July 14, 2011.

She is at home. The preparation was in the making for 56 years as she faithfully served as a ministers wife. Through those years, her character was crafted, and she became an example of a sacrificial mother and an honorable wife. If a theme could be attached to her life, it would be that SHE LOVED. She loved more than anything else. She loved with all her heart. She loved everyone she believed in... SHE LOVED. Her family awaits the invitation to participate in the homecoming events.

She was born a twin in Dayton, Tenn., on September 5, 1924.

She was the wife of the late Rev. Warren G. Beavers for 65 years and transitioned three years to the day of his death.

The funeral will be held at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, July 17, 2011 at Daisy Church of God with Bishops Jewel Travis and Sam Phillips along with Rev. Estle Sanders officiating.
